Event Coverage drag week 2019

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by racer-x, Feb 23, 2019.

  1. Finnegan and the Blasphemi seem to be running well. I was going down to Atco, but have too much to do at work, plus the weather is iffy. Red sky at morning, sailor take warning... the sun looked like one big orange meatball when I was on the road to work.
     
  2. Watched a little live feed. Weather looks good. Good luck today

  4. Everything was fixed last Friday. Just waiting for the converter. Shop said it will be ready for pick up Thursday. Spending the week watching the live feed while I work on the chevelle.

    A few pictures today. I missed third gear on the first pass. Second run went on. I ran right after Finnegan, stopped at the top end to say hi. Then Bailey ran, I heard it was really fast.

  6. Couple pictures from hotrod.com and today's route. You get to cross the Chesapeake bay bridge. It's a 4 mile bridge that is nearly 200 ft above the bay... beautiful views from the top. 009-2019-drag-week-day-2-on-the-road-to-atco.jpg 010-2019-drag-week-day-2-on-the-road-to-atco.jpg Screenshot_20190911-135142_Maps.jpg

  7. Squirrel I read Bailey went 6.18 @ 238. I believe that is the quickest drag week pass ever. If I remember right lutz had the record at 6.19
     
  8. Lutz still has the record at 6.10. The time Baily ran is his personal best.

    How is that even possible. I can't keep a stock 283 running long enough to make it across country. These guys are insane fast.
     
  10. Thanks Mikey. Either way they are all fast

    Roothawg this event is insane. To drive 1000+ miles and make at least 5 passes can be tough on any car
     
  11. I need to see some racing!
    I’m going to take a break from working on my car and head on down to MIR tomorrow. Look forward to meeting ya’ll.

  12. It is fact. David in the tower looked everything up today. He has all the stats. Drag week is HIS deal.
     
  13. A lot of cars were almost HOT LAPPING today to get a faster run. The lanes closed at 1:15. Early for a drag week day. There will be carnage on the road tonight. Cars are breaking now due to the insane stress. Yea thats DRAG WEEK. Drive it Fast And Make It Last!!

    The place we're staying tonight is a bit sketchy. It's after midnight, and I'm still up watching the parking lot. Might be a long day tomorrow.

  19. Are you staying close to the track? Waldorf? Mechanicsville? La Plata?
     
  20. Hope you got some sleep! What place/city are you in?

    Here is the day 3 results .... 20190912_061051.jpg

  21. I suppose we could have offered up a few locals to stand guard on the parking lot overnight. Quite a few armed individuals in the area. I would have been happy to participate. Just for the record, I hate a thief and anyone who messes with someone's vehicle..............................Don.
     
  22. And a few shots from my brothers. FB_IMG_1568283763130.jpg FB_IMG_1568283729263.jpg FB_IMG_1568283716068.jpg FB_IMG_1568283711453.jpg FB_IMG_1568283805101.jpg

    It was fine, in the end. The desk clerk had a good handle on the situation, I don't think anyone had a problem. Steve brought all their stuff into the room, as usual. I spent a while talking with a family who was staying there, and hanging out in the parking lot. I let the teenage kids sit in my car, tried to explain what we're doing to them.

    We are in Waldorf. IMG_20190912_062259918.jpeg

    Hindsight is 20 / 20. But a really good thought for the future. I would volunteer in a heartbeat!
